Young Politicians respond to the Mumbai Tragedy-Vinod Tawde, MLC
Vinod Tawde, 45 years,
MLC, Maharashtra, BJP
There are talks of appointing CEO for Mumbai and doing away with democracy. We should look at our neighbour and appreciate the value of democracy. There is a saying in Marathi- Aag se bhage aur andhi main bhanse! ( in escaping from fire one should not get into a storm)
People are right in expressing their anger, but the failure is not that of democracy. There have been lapses on the part of the people who are at the helm of affairs. Even opposition parties are responsible. We have to strengthen our security systems. Politicians need to be held more accountable. Politics has to focus on development and security.
The anger that people are expressing has to be channelled in higher participation in voting and politics. Voting is the best weapon that democracy offers.
